that's it for"the willis report." dvr our show if you can't catch a fly. neil: here you go. >> am sorry in this situation based on assurces they got for me. the one he is sorry but that doesn't mean he is taking anything back now. d he is fixing it on-the-fly. a look at how that is creating a bigger fly-by-night situation. welcome, i am neil cavuto. the president has a echie.
they found out that it's worse than they thought. and this is a hacker's vicory. now, it is all lies some of these guys starting from scratch, scratch that because the president is doubling down and trying to redo it. and while i have the feeling that it's all about that, you know, i don't know this, bu i did find a pretty darn good tech person who has a good idea. and he is is responsible for the wanting out of pennsylvania avenue that should have passed the test of time. and teresa has some ideas on how
the esident might still be able to salvage this. knowing what you did innowing what they have to do, this is the major le year. but go ahead, what do they do? >> my heart goes out to the tech team becau they are working 24 by seven affixes. in the first place, i get that playing out and i wold meet with american companies like disney and amazon and fedex never get tha outside advice. neil: this is abot catch up. but where those guys to say and
we are hearing from a lot of techies th that is what they are encountering. >> stabilize the system and then make bad or do we need to actually build omething n. but the key right now is that we have to get this righ and then make those decisions later. neil: president bush met with every demand and traffic that would rise exponentially. and i don't know the rollout and how it is on the time of day, ebay could tell you that but how important is that gauging traffic demand when people want tt get onto a website? >> it's critically important.
i would expect that they should have hour by hour record to tell them when the peak times are d also when customers are getting bumped up the system. that should be apparent in warning people about the peak times to stay away from the site. >> a1 people keep tremolite again. and the systems simply can't handle the traffic or servers or whether you need something bigger or -- i don't know, at what point is it -- what we go isn't suitable and we have to start from scratch. >> i think tat you need to look at the team and you need to say
that is this fixll and ask their inion because they are the ones that are going to know whether or not they can for more band-aids on and makit work or if really band-aid isn't going to stop the hemorrhaging. and once thee get through that theywould work together with the security team and i would say what you think. does this have a shelf life of a year or two years or do we need to do something different. neil: president bush had a medica prescription drug plan that was really not paid for. but eventually they did get it done and people were able tt takedvantage of it and what critics are saying qassam oe with the president said at the time. at least getting it ruled out ruled out. it got thee. what do you think on the larger scale? >> we have a lot of unanswered questions since i'm not sure.
but one thing i'm not a big fan is sort of bigbang approach is an in three years were going to get a system and any features and functionity once we get the system well, we deliver them in 30 to 90 day increments and nowe learn a lot about the customer experience beyond that very intuitive. >> i think we need to take it on a smaller chunk nstead of lo deliverables. neil: when i was a kid i used to prepare my parents were straight grates on my report card so if they saw a couple of low-grade, they thought that i was being goofy. honestly they didn't harken my advice. thann you so much. the one switching gears here, in washgton, the economic recovery being cut at he pass. it did not happen despite all of the doom and gloom. more indications of really good
and and it used to drive the teral government to a standstill. the way that they had a disastrous amot of sequestration steps. >> no mtter what. >> clearly the early read on both and is is that they do not do the harm that was feared. >> i hope that is right. is that i like it was a joke, but there's now group o people saying that maybe the shdown was good for the economy. >> ty got ore data between august and september, the numbers were very solid. and if that contues, i think
that what that would be a very good sigthat the economy will recover. >> so so much for shutdown, what you say >> well, you know, the impact, these numbers hold these impacts will not be as negative as what people anticipate. wehave a major bed of this going here. then they say that that happen despite obama's. neil: i do want to get into that, get inside your head to understand what is inside what is going on. where is there a sense with republiccns until the emperor
that he has no close >> it's a big question. a little inflammatory. >> they wee able to set their exchanges in timely way. neil: let's talk about the websit does anyone tell the president that it's not going to be that way? >> i doo't know. i wasn't there in the run-up to this, but i think that in this case of the group of people in the individual market were getting notifications that they can keep their plans come and
they have a switch to different plans, this is a thing that is applying his something like 2% of the country. neil: we don't know about that percentage. >> 5% in te market total. as for more than half of the people are either either to receive the current policy or are getting some animosities be onewhat do you think will ppen next year exchanges, private d otherwise? >> i think that some migt. but you have to remember the context of apple debate was people saying this is overnment takeover and it was like they wee going tolose one private insurance option but five other insurance options to choose from. the bugaboo that they were comparing to was that i wasn't
a government that was taken over the entrance. and a narrow slice of the market is going to private sector. neil: i love you dearly. but i have to tell you there's a rategy there. it was a brilliant woman the goal all along might'v been either you are letting out where i can appreciate that we might go to a single single-payer >> they are saying let's forget it or whatever. that let's just make it clear that i understand the. neil: i derstand. i'm making it pretty clear. to the republicans are not allowed. it's always good having you. okay, let's move on. coming up, the president kicked off health insurance.
